Underwater flash unit NiMH

In the Ikelite DS230 underwater strobe, extra-large strobe capacitors and a dedicated battery offer twice the speed and energy of the next smaller strobe, the Ikelite DS51 Mark II.

The ultimate output for high-impact photography

Some underwater situations require as much light as possible. The DS230 offers more flash capacity to penetrate the water and deliver sharper, more colorful and professional-looking wide-angle images. The DS230 has the power you need, whether you’re shooting in a pool studio or outdoors.

And the whole thing, top quality, “made in USA”

The only flash you will need

From inventing detachable underwater sync cords to developing groundbreaking digital TTL electronics, Ikelite is dedicated to manufacturing strobe systems that stand the test of time. Ike’s theory is “Smart Housing, Dumb Strobe” was carried out to the revolutionary concept of modular TTL intelligence. Just connect the right trigger device(s) and the DS230 will output fast and accurate every time. This provides the ultimate versatility in any camera system, reliability and guards against obsolescence as cameras with new TTL protocols are released every year.

Permanent video lighting for hybrid cameras

Equally strong in both still and video capture, some of today’s best mirrorless and compact digital cameras demand more from a lighting system than ever. At the same time, airline restrictions are strong and just getting your gear on the site can be a lot of work. The DS230 features a powerful 2500 lumen wide beam COB LED light panel that allows you to effortlessly switch between still image and video.

The video light doubles as an aiming light and turns off and on automatically every time you take a photo. In video mode, light output is controlled in low, medium, and high power settings, as well as an SOS mode to signal other emergency situations.

The proven leader in underwater lighting

Ikelite was the first to introduce these now-standard underwater strobe technologies: target lights, cables, detachable batteries, smart charging, battery power indicators, TTL wireless slave sensors, integrated video lights, and TTL communication with digital cameras.

We have the longest track record of designing and manufacturing professional underwater strobe lights. We offer the only underwater flashes designed and manufactured in the USA and distributed in over 95 countries worldwide.
